COPENHAGEN, March 3, 2020 – Phase One today introduced the Phase One Lab – a unique invitation for Phase One photographers to gain exclusive early access to the boundary- pushing features Phase One has under development and contribute to the development of IQ4 Camera Systems.

The Phase One Lab is the embodiment of Phase One’s passion for forward-thinking innovation within photography and their dedication to the photographers who rely on Phase One cameras to capture their most remarkable work. Their vision is to keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible in digital photography and deliver innovation to those who choose Phase One.

The Lab is a dynamic and evolving workspace that extends unprecedented access to the feature development roadmap and Phase One’s technical experts – forming an open conversation with photographers that serves as valuable feedback to inform and polish the final feature that will become a permanent tool on IQ4 cameras.

Dual Exposure+

By harnessing the expansive power and performance of the IQ4 Infinity Platform, Phase One have once again set a new image quality standard with the first feature to be made available in the Phase One Lab – Dual Exposure+. Introducing a completely new capture process to the photography industry, Dual Exposure+ promises IQ4 150MP Camera Systems to output unparalleled improvements in dynamic range and shadow detail performance.

“The core technology of our first Phase One Lab feature, Dual Exposure+, is the culmination of many different development streams in sensor technology, platform architecture and image processing. With the Lab, we can now involve our customers directly in the process of turning this somewhat geeky technology innovation into a powerful and intuitive tool for creative photography.” – Lau Nørgaard, Chief Visionary Officer and VP of Product Management.
